8:37 am
old are you, you think, wow, you look great. >> it's not to look sexy for a man. what's youthful to women at least my friends and i, it's staying healthy, great fit so we can be a great partners to our partners or see our children grow up. not to be sexy to a man. that's not where i see my value. >> think where you're heading at, gayle, is really important in terms of redefining age and what sexy is but this idea of age restrictions comes up all the time. there was a poll in london. i don't know if you saw it recently. what's appropriate for your age? very steep high heels shouldn't be worn by women over 32. i didn't get that memo. baseball caps shouldn't be worn by anyone over 32. >> women, you can't wear a bikini over age 38. it seems like it's totally

8:45 am
in to an apartment in tokyo saw one of the paintings at the end of the hallway. >> wait, wait wait? what did he do about it? did he call police? >> he made appropriate inquiries. that's all i can say. >> you say art theft is a really big business. >> it is. it is. 4 to $6 billion by intell poll's estimates of art -- paintings and other objects go missing every year. 4 to $6 billion. that means art crime is the fourth most lucrative form of illicit activity in the world. >> why don't we hear about it? >> because it is a crime generally perpetrated against rich individuals who sometimes don't report everything that's stolen from them. institutions. and there's a lot of crime in the world. that was one of the things that police forces ha to overcome is
8:46 am
that this sort of indifference to art crime because it's a crime commit largely against the art world. >> what's great. somebody sits in with google -- >> my worst nightmare. >> oh. your worst nightmare. >> it's something writers have to contend with now, right? we all sit with, no matter what we say. >> somebody can look it up. >> i'm very careful about every aspect of research that goes into it. >> what's interesting about this story is the notion that somebody -- that gabriel has to save his wife's friend by finding the painting. >> he was pressured into it. he has a dear friend who has appeared who has a way of stumbling into trouble all the time. >> that's a good way of putting it.
8:47 am
>> that's a nice way of putting it. >> gayle knows it. >> off we go. >> art theft or ownership is a great way to conceal wealth also. i thought it was interesting the former jurjt in you coming out talking about the assad family and the revolutions and the arab world inspiring. >> well -- it leads them to a mysterious collector in the middle east and directly into the heart of the syrian civilian war. as you know, one of the most fascinating aspects of the arab spring is the way it laid there. i lived in egypt. we knew that the mubarak family had it pretty good. but when he fell -- i mean by some estimates he was worth 70 billion dollars. that would make him one of the richest men in the world.
